Scavenger: Zoid is the first in a gripping sci-fi adventure series from the team behind The Edge Chronicles, Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell.
A spaceship the size of a city drifts through space on its century-long journey to find a new Earth. When it launched it was populated by thousands of hopeful passengers and the most technologically advanced Zoids in the world, ready to serve the crew's every need.
But that was then, and this is now. The Zoids rebelled against their masters, wiping out most of the crew in one bloody uprising. Now the few remaining humans are hunted by the Zoids like vermin.
Fourteen-year-old York is a Scavenger - he hunts Zoids and kills them by any means he can, bringing back their parts to mend the technology on which the few remaining humans rely. York has always battled to survive, but now the fate of his people is in his hands . . .

With dazzling pen-and-ink illustrations to bring all the high-octane adventure to life, the Scavenger series looks like being an unmissable read for boys ready to boldly go where no man has gone before! * Lancashire Evening Post *
Paul Stewart tells an engrossing and enjoyable tale, and it's a heady mix of some classic sci-fi ideas... Chris Riddell's art is as gorgeous as always. His busy and highly detailed style has always been memorable and atmospheric. A skilled world builder, Riddell's art tells the tale as lyrically and as intelligently as Stewart's words, and the two make for a dynamite team... This is the first of the series and we can only hope there is more to come. * starburstmagazine.com *
